Gold paintings quickly became a symbol of wealth, purity, prestige, and godliness. Indeed, gold-encrusted works of art have been used for various purposes throughout human history, including displays of religious devotion, economic power, and luxury. Gold also stands for the dazzling rays of light illuminating our world. Specialists utilized either gold leaf or gold paint contingent upon the ideal "light" impact and operated various methods. Gold was frequently used only as a background color in paintings. They carried it out into gold leaf and applied it to the material. The actual motifs, like scenes of people or landscapes, were then painted on this "gold ground," which was neutral but had a lot of shine. In religious icon and panel painting, this method is particularly well-known.
